Lots of judging off one another – so some got eliminated by reason it didn’t stack up with the rest. Instead of fitting the content to the concept, they fit the content to the concept. Taking care with the tone of the piece fitting to the content. Problematic use of display type that parrots one of the visual elements without complementing one another. Good organizational and innovative qualities in some of the top spreads – carrying visual elements through spread.
Consideration of unity with illustrations for a concept.
Overall magazine design (A11):
Each spread had a fresh and consistent feel.The stronger contenders had the quality of design carrying all the way through, just a couple started strong but toward the middle became weak. Innovative elements and risk-taking was rewarded.
